A very special bluebell meadow will raise funds for hospice

A meadow at the National Trust’s Erddig, near Wrexham will become a sea of blue later this year in aid of Nightingale House Hospice.

The hospice is launching its third Sunshine Meadow this summer, selling specially designed everlasting bluebells to help raise money for patient care.

The 1,000 bluebells, made by the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry, will be on display in the Moss Walk at Erddig, thanks to cooperation from the National Trust.

A bluebell can be purchased for £30 and become a tribute to the life of a loved one or a beautiful gift for a family friend or relative.

The bluebells will be displayed from June 12 to July 16. The bluebells can then be collected from Caffi Cwtch, Nightingale House Hospice, Chester Road, Wrexham on August 22, September 5 or September 12 between 10am – 4pm, or they can be posted out to individuals if postage has been paid.

This year’s campaign is sponsored by InXpress Wrexham, Entrec, Excell Supply Limited and DTCC.

Ross Jermy from InXpress said: “We are delighted to help this wonderful local charity continue with their fundraising after having had to cancel or postpone so many events during the last 12 months.  What better way to celebrate the life of a loved one than to buy one of these unique pieces of art from the installation. We hope these bluebells will go on to brighten up many gardens this year. “

Hospice fundraiser Delyth Underwood said: “We hope people will be able to support us again this year. We understand everyone has faced very uncertain times, but support for our hospice is needed more now than ever before as we have had to cancel or postpone so many events and close our shops and cafes during the last 12 months. It is imperative that hospice care continues and we will, for as long as we need to, adapt our services to ensure we are able to continue supporting local families throughout this period.”
